    Approximation method for coupled DEq

    I've derived the equations of motion for a double (physical) pendulum. There are two coupled equations and I need to solve them numerically for \alpha (t) and \beta (t). I thought I'd see if anyone would suggest a method: I'm leaning toward a Runge-Kutta solution, but might there be a better...

    Solving a coupled pair of differential equations using matrices

    I am asked to find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the matrix: A = \left(\begin{array}{cc}5&3\\1&7\end{array}\right) I find them as \lambda_1 = 8 , \lambda_2 = 4 and v_1 = (1,1) , v_2 = (-3,1) The equations I need to solve are: \frac{dx}{dt} = 5x +3 y and \frac{dy}{dt} = x + 7y...

    coupled differential equations

    I really have no idea to go about doing question 2, I can't find any information about coupled differential equations that I understand, or any examples to help. Here's question 1 to help with question 2 Thanks in advance for anyone who can offer advice. (Bow)(Bow)

    Coupled differential equations

    Anyone know how to solve these equations without using eigenvalues/eigenvectors? Can these be solved using standard integration techniques? dx/dt = 4x+2y dy/dt = -x +y where x and y are functions of t.

    Coupled partial differential equation...how to find a solution?

    I have four coupled pde's I need to find solutions to, they are; \hbar \frac{\partial}{\partial t}W_{(x,y,t)} = g_1 \left( sin(\omega t) \frac{\partial}{\partial x} - cos(\omega t) \frac{\partial}{\partial y} \right) \Gamma_{(x,y,t)} +g_2 \left( sin(\omega t) \frac{\partial}{\partial x} -...

    Damped Oscillator equation. Finding Energy and general solution for coupled oscillato

    Hi! I can do (a) easily enough but (b) has me totally stumped altogether! I can't seem to figure out how they get it in that form! Also (c) I'm having the same problem. I have two exams tomorrow and this is the first one so im juggling between the two subjects going through the past papers so if...

    Coupled Linear System in matrix form

    I want to change this coupled linear system to the form dx/dt=Ax where A is a Matrix. we have dx/dt=3y-4x dy/dt=5y-6x can anyone explain to me how to do it? I have no idea... I think A= (-4 3) (-6 5) am i wrong?

    How to solve coupled optimization problem?

    Hi there, I have got a problem of solving coupled optimization problem in real application. For example, The objective function E(a,b) contains two sets of variables need to be optimized: E(x, a) = \frac{1}{2}\bigg(y - W(a)x\bigg)^2; Assume W(a) is a transformation matrix describing...

    finite difference method, coupled wave equations, chickens & eggs

    I'm reading a book (Numerical Techniques in Electromagnetics by Sadiku) & just finished the section on finite difference methods. As what I thought would be an easy exercise, I tried to apply what I'd learned to the telegraphers equations that describe the voltage, V(x, t), and current, I(x, t)...
